Surnames: FAHEY, FAY, DUNPHY, SMITH, SMYTHE
Looking for descendants of JOHN FAHEY and BRIDGET DUNPHY [not sure when or where they married]. They had at least 3 children, PATRICK, b 25 Feb 1837. Bridget, b 4 April 1840 and James, b 20 July 1851. Children were born in Ballytobin and Knockgarvie, which is in the Dunnamaggin area of KILKENNY.
PATRICK FAHEY married in Dublin c 1864 to Mary or Maria SMITH or SMYTHE. Children were Walter who changed his name to FAY in 1891, Jane, William, John, Stephen, Henry, Florence and possibly Bridget. Patrick was in the 4th Royal
Irish Dragoons for 21 years and settled in Manchester. All replies acknowledged and appreciated. Thanks, Wendy Cooksey, Wodonga, Australia

Surnames: Dunphy, Smith.
I am tracing the names Dunphy/Smith. In particular Shamus Dunphy who married Bridget Flynn, I believe they had a son Patrick b. abt. 1815 Kilkenny. At some point (I haven't discovered yet) they emmigrated to Newfoundland, Canada. Also, James Smith b. abt. 1803, maybe born Wales? Have you come across these in your research?

Hello, Wendy. Your posting is a few years old, so I hope this reply reaches you. I am a fairly recent researcher. My great great grandmother was Bridget Fahey, born around 1840 in Ireland. Not sure Where....or who her parents were...or if she had siblings....
She immigrated to USA either before or after she married Thomas McGuire (also born 1840 in Ireland). She died 20 Oct 1892 in NY.
Any chance of a connection?
